if you couldn’t tell by now, i LOVE Trader Joe’s. i love what they have to offer and i know that i can walk out of there with a couple bags full of stuff and not feel like i spent my entire pay check. i always look around and try to find something i didn’t notice before, which isn’t hard to do.
i picked up a bottle of the champagne pear vinaigrette salad dressing and i think i found a new lover (sorry, Ken’s). it’s tangy, it’s creamy, it’s sweet, it’s zingy – and it even has gorgonzola cheese in it. i already started dreaming about what kind of salads i could top off with this, and this is one of them.
i cooked up some chicken tenders with salt and pepper. while the chicken cooled off, i took a few handfuls of baby leaf spinach (my favorite) and put it in a bowl. i chopped up some walnuts and cubed up a white nectarine. i topped it off with some of the chicken and a few drizzles of the champagne pear dressing.
i even made some for lunch tomorrow. this stuff is AMAZING!
